Host Sofija Stefanovic welcomes some of her favorite outsiders for a celebration of immigration!
Each month, at one of New York's finest venues, some fish-out-of-water tell true tales from their lives. Hear anecdotes about language barriers, cultural missteps, rumbles, romance, and more! From addresses to the President, to songs about first kisses, the evening is set to be one of worldly proportions.
This March, uncensored on our stage, we bring you:
- ANDRÉ ACIMAN (author of Enigma Variations and Call Me by Your Name)
- MEERA NAIR (essayist and author of Video)
- ROJO PEREZ (stand-up comedian)
- MEREDITH TALUSAN (journalist, author and executive editor at them)
- DANUSIA TREVINO (actress and storyteller)
... with music from guitarist GABE SCHNIDER
In a multicultural world that harbors some strong anti-immigration feelings, being a newcomer can be uncomfortable, hilarious, and weird. But it also makes for some great stories.
Come for the stories, leave with some feelings – and enjoy drinks, laughs and cries in between.
